    From skywindpower.com: A simulated take off in a powered-via-the-tether mode is shown where the rotors are nearly parallel to the ground. Then the FEG is seen transitioning to the nose up position that it will maintain during the electrical power generation mode in which persistent winds provide the only power that spins the rotors. Each rotor is attached to a generator. Next, electrical power flow is illustrated as light traveling down the tether from the remote restricted airspace and over imaginary power lines to light a distant city.

    Short videos of the Flying Electric Generator (FEG) shown in the pictures on the home page of our web site. First, to view the video of the original flying electric generator choose among several files depending upon your internet connection speed and which video player your computer has. The video shows Roberts twin 15 foot diameter rotor test model flying electric generator in both side and front views of the machine flying in the power generation mode in which the wind spins the rotor blades. This mode followed a powered-via-the-tether mode (not shown) where the rotors were mostly parallel to the ground. Then a transition to the autorotation mode took place (also not shown) followed by a further transition to the electrical power generation mode in the nose up position maintained in the video.

    In the near future you will be able to generate electricity with Rotor kites. Much like windmills they are a renewable resource. The rotor also offers the convenience of portability.

    This is the Laddermill power plant, a project of Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. The Laddermill produces power when the kite unrolls a cable from the drum, that drives the generator. When the cable is reeled back in less energy is consumed. In this way energy is produced every cycle. This video shows the status of the system in June 2010. The system consists of a 20kW generator and a custom built 25m2 bow kite and 50m2 foil kite.
